Blackpool & Fleetwood Tramway Double-Deckers September 2007
As usual in the first week of September, British Trams Online webmaster Gareth Prior was in Blackpool for the sights and sounds of the Blackpool & Fleetwood Tramway. Over the next eight pages are images of the double-decker trams in the fleet during the week. There are 22 photos in this gallery this does not include trams such as Standard 147 and Bolton 66 as they are classed as "other trams" as they are more special than the Balloons and Jubilees listed here. (As ever you can access the photos by using the links at either the top or bottom of the page)

The all over advert for Sealife Centre on Balloon 709 has been updated for 2007 with the between deck ad for Pirates - The Legend of Blackbeard added. The tram is at Pleasure Beach on 2nd September 2007.
